About First Call Parts
OEM Recognized Refurbishment Program
Siemens • Philips • GE • Toshiba
For more than a decade, our organization was the only authorized independent refurbisher for Siemens Medical Solutions in the United States. Years of fine tuning and independent ISO audits have resulted in a comprehensive refurbishment program and approved quality system.
Our capabilities include cosmetic restoration, adjustment and calibration to factory specifications, component failure analysis, and board level repair. Systems are broken down to the component level to facilitate a complete and thorough analysis. Parts approved for refurbishment are fully tested and calibrated to OEM specification and are scheduled for sufficient burn-in time prior to being stocked for sale.

Chief Executive Officer
After an Honorable discharge from the U.S. Air Force, Carl joined Siemens Medical Solutions as a field engineer where he specialized in Cath and Angio Imaging for almost 20 years. In 1996, he felt that it was time to start his own business and that is when Blue Ridge Medical Imaging began.
Carl started building BRMI as the premier Refurbisher of Siemens Cath and Angio Imaging equipment in the U.S. with the emphasis on absolute quality and Customer Service. After 12 years in business, this philosophy has proven true. BRMI was quickly ISO 9001:2000 certified and became known for quality refurbishing of Siemens Imaging products. At this same time, BRMI also started its Mobile Cath and Angio division. These superb refurbished systems are used throughout the country by hospital facilities to provide interim solutions for their customers. BRMI has earned a well respected reputation throughout the U.S. and in several foreign countries.
